Notes

Overcast with some sunny breaks and quite windy. Had around 8 MM rainfall over past 24 hours. Some songbirds around and water bugs on the pond surface. Beavers have been busy with their dam at the end of the pond where the stream flows out, and the higher water levels since last month show the results of their efforts.
